Tangerinish Off the Shoulder Dress

Added May 8, 2013

This style is inspired by Stephanie O. She use knits but I choose to use some leftover cotton fabric that I had from a previous project. I attacked the style with a very open mind don’t know what to expect but at the same time hoping it would turned out great. It is a lined dress with a very close fitting bodice that extends into straps with side pockets and zipper at back.

I was so amazed at how it turned out and the colour was great with my complexion. Yeah!!! hope next time to find a lovely knit to redo.

What do you think?

    This is the dress I love the most I think! This style is nice on you …. the skirt, the shoulder, the color are perfect! Is is a full circle? I was thinking of making a dress with dropped shoulders too!
